Hooters in Brighton

Following on from the thread about the Hooters opening in Bristol, I saw on the Hooters UK homepage that they "will be opening [a] restaurant" in Brighton in the next six months.

Checked out the Brighton & Hove Council website and it looks to me like they have an current licensing applicaton: here.

If that's the case then BRIGHTON residents and others can still put pressure on the planning dept to reject the application...

..so let's get on with it.

Try this link and search "Hooters" under "Trading Name".

c&p from the other thread:

Click through and is says "status:Checks Outstanding "

The police and fire consulations ended 25/07/2010 not much info but re licenced activities:

Wonder what the dance and film are hmm .

Anyone in Brighton - perhaps you could go and look at the documents?

I am not sure what "Checks Outstanding" means.

I think an article in a paper I saw implied it was a done deal now?

Thanks Tabouleh - sorry I missed it on there.

Don't think it's a done deal - most recent thing I can find is this from the Argus, which says it was due to go before the council in mid-august. Can't see anything that says a decision was made, and it's still listed on the council website which is only for open applications.

Can they defer a decision for some reason?

This article implies that it's a done deal:

They may have got their facts wrong, though...

I just spoke to someone from the licencing dept - it is a done deal - they just have to formally write up and issue the licence.

Had a good chat with the bloke actually and have some info on the licencing conditions but have to go now so will post later.

ElephantsAndMiasmas Mon 13-Sep-10 17:31:54

But if they haven't issued the license, it's not a done deal surely?

Ask the council to check out the disability discrimination polices and also their maternity pay and benefits. Are they in line with UK law?

aloiseb Mon 13-Sep-10 22:14:51

What about sex discrimination? Do they specify large attributes in order to get their choice of pert waitresses, or are they asking for women only, which ought to be illegal?

Sakura Tue 14-Sep-10 05:57:24

A lot of this is going on on the sly isn't it. I reckon they'll get sneakier with the remaining 30 or so sights.

Blackduck Tue 14-Sep-10 06:08:58

Interestingly on their site there is no job description for the Hooter Girl - so how the hell are they recruiting them? Clearly not through any legal means

ElephantsAndMiasmas Tue 14-Sep-10 09:44:29

they probably head hunt them from local cafes? Or didn't someone say they are asking girls in the street in Bristol? angry

Sakura Tue 14-Sep-10 10:04:47

minimum wage apparently. "head-hunted" would probably make some girls feel flattered though.

ElephantsAndMiasmas Tue 14-Sep-10 11:52:59

yeah, or with the promise of better tipping. likely.

ovumahead Sat 18-Sep-10 13:59:46

So there's nothing we can do about Hooters in Brighton then?

EdgarAllInPink Sat 18-Sep-10 14:08:29

planning search didn't bring up an application in that postcode

SonnBee Wed 17-Aug-11 13:32:30

Wellll.. If the women don't mind working under such conditions then why are you guys getting your knickers in a twist? Live and let live.. no one's forcing you to go to Hooters

MumblingRagDoll Wed 17-Aug-11 14:13:35

I'll tell you why SonnBee Because I don't want my daughters thinking it's fine for men to pay to see womens bodies on display and to flirt with them. It's not ok. If men want to flirt and have a look at some womans body then they can find someone to have a relationship with.

Displaying women bodies for money is demeaning to all women. Women are not commodities to be bought and sold.

I don't want some sex orientated cafe,bar,club or resaurant on my doorstep.

BonnieLassie Thu 18-Aug-11 00:24:15

Do you object to men flirting with waitresses in non-Hooters restaurants?
